I am new to flash catalyst so this may be a really simple problem but any help would be good thanks
When you create a button it is easy to create the interaction of going to a URL, but is there any way to create a button that will open a document that I have on my PC? (powerpoint, microsoft word files etc). So that when I run the project there are links which open up a range of files, not just link to websites.
Thanks in advance
If you mean; actually opening the document from your PC: no
If you mean opening any file or document uploaded to your webspace, edit the url link with: /docname.extension
In other words like: http://www.yourdomain.uk/myadres.pdf
Also, note that Flash Catalyst does not support relative URLs (../docs/mydoc.pdf). You can import the file into Flash Builder and edit the urls there to add this functionality in. There are some posts in the forums discussing this further if you need that functionality,
